DIY Baby Boy Shower Ideas

Updated on September 6, 2019

How to Host a Great Baby Shower

If a special little boy is on the way it's time to organize a shower to celebrate the special occasion. Expectant mothers will be looking for ideas on how to make their baby showers memorable and fun. You can make personalized favors and prizes as well as decorations to suit your chosen theme.

Baby Vest Mantle

For this idea you can either purchase baby vests from the local charity store or brand new ones that you may have already purchased as part of your baby prep shopping. String them across a manlte for a very cute bunting idea that guests will adore.

Baby Shower Trophies

Just hot-glue a baby bottle onto a glass candle stick holder, both can be found at the dollar store. Afterwards, spray paint all over with Krylon Metallic Gold and leave it to dry.

Elephant Rice Krispies

Elephant snacks are almost too cute to eat. Get a little elephant cookie cutter and use melted marshmallow over rice krispies to make these. You can even add blue icing if you so choose.

Elephant Diaper Cake

We all love Dumbo the elephant so naturally elephants are a great little feature for to add to your party. You can even have little elephant napkins and elephant bunting to really get the elephant theme going. Elephant Diaper Cake Instructions

Floral Baby

Spelling out baby over vases and adding flowers is ideal for an elegant themed tea party baby shower. It's also neutral if you use cream flowers so if you are trying to keep the gender a secret this could work for you.

Nautical Punch

A blue punch is perfect for a boy baby shower and you can choose to make it either alcholoic or non alcoholic. For the alcoholic version try Coconut rum, blue curaƧao, and sprite and for non alcoholic use blue kool aid.

Chalkboard Welcome Sign

This is a neat idea to welcome your guests, especially if you have already chosen a name. You can get chalkoard paint and paint over an old frame or you can get a chalkboard at your local craft store. These are really useful things to have around the house for all kinds of parties and menus for example.

Shower Game Gift

"From Our Shower to Yours!" Rustic Shower in a Jar includes : travel size shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face wash, and loofa! Im going to add a Bath and Body Works gift card and this will be our diaper raffle prize.

Bottled Water & Barefoot Wine favors

Bottled Water & Barefoot Wine favors

Give these cute wines and waters to thirsty guests as favors or shower prizes. Cut a ribbon and use it to hold a tag around the bottle. Add your special message on the tag for guests to keep as a token of the day.

Umbrella Centerpiece

Umbrella Centerpiece

For the wow factor - make this Raindrop Umbrella Centerpiece. Cut raindrops onto paper and use string to attach them. Fill a vase with blue glass gems until roughly quarter full and place the umbrella inside so it stands up on its own - you can add flowers to make it even prettier.

Baby shower game

Baby shower game called shit happens where you melt candy bars in the diapers and have your guests guess candy bar is the "shit" in each of the diapers.

Baby shower lotto

Baby shower lotto

New way to award prizes at a Baby Shower, Birthday party or other event. Hand out "lotto" tickets to winners that when scratched off reveal a corresponding number to a prize. Directions: print lotto ticket on printer paper- you can print to card stock if you wish- or cut out ticket and glue to desired card stock. Cut out a piece of sticky-back plastic - it's used to laminate documents, large enough to cover the desired "scratch-off" area.
